Redevelopment of the DVS website

We will shortly be redeveloping the DVS website. The current website was designed over 10 years ago and is in need of modernisation. Consequently we are undertaking a thorough review of its content and features and we are inviting anyone who uses it to let us know what you want from a new website. In particular is there anything that you would like to see added in your own areas of interest?

Rationalisation and simplification of the menu structure and navigation around the site is one area we are addressing.

Additional content could include information about our role in scrutinising and responding to planning applications, what our policies are in respect of development, how to contact us for information on these matters, a link to the Council planning website and how to navigate around it, etc.

Other additions might include links to other websites, for example: the Charity Commission, bus timetables, train timetables, a lot of the items already listed on our website: “In and Around Dore”, “Clubs and Societies”, etc., but not yet linked to other relevant websites, the Wikipedia entry for Dore, links to our local Councillors, etc.

And links to other community websites in the area (Totley, Bradway, Ecclesall, etc.)

We could also add the minutes of our monthly meetings and AGMs, our annual accounts and the trustees’ annual statement, and the committee profiles which are currently appearing in Dore to Door.

This is your opportunity to influence the content and features of the next version of the DVS website so if you have any comments can you please let me have them by 23rd December?

Dore Village Society is now also a Neighbourhood Planning Forum

Both Sheffield City Council and the Peak District Planning Authority have approved Dore Village Society’s applications to become a Neighbourhood Planning Forum and agreed the Neighbourhood Planning Area for Dore.

Both local planning authorities are required to support the preparation of a neighbourhood plan. Any neighbourhood plan must comply with the local plans for both local authority areas but there is scope to influence the location and type of development that the community feels is appropriate to protect and enhance the village and its countryside context.

Under the Localism Act 2011 the designation permits the Dore Village Society to prepare a neighbourhood plan that can make planning policies to reflect the local community’s views on new development in the area for the next 15-20 years. This is a good reason for members of the community becoming members of Dore Village Society. If you live or work in the village your membership will be welcomed.

Work on the Plan has commenced, encouraged by the two local planning authorities. The initial work has been based on the Village Design Statement published by Dore Village Society in 2005 and on further consultation undertaken of the whole community through questionnaires in Dore to Door and the Dore Village Society website.

We are still in the early stages of preparing a draft neighbourhood plan and would welcome the offer of help and support from any individual or village group.
